School Direct

Train to teach in your local school and make a difference from the beginning


Teach Bolton School Direct PGCE QTS initial teacher training programme offers graduates the opportunity to train locally, supporting positive outcomes for our local children and working within a motivated and passionate teaching team, enabling you to gain valuable practical experience from Day One.


SS Simon & Jude CE Primary School, Bolton is the lead school in the successful Teach Bolton Primary Partnership. We have been involved in School Direct with University of Cumbria from its very first year and we are proud to celebrate a 100% employment record for students completing our School Direct Programme. For us, this is what School Direct is all about. We support you to become a confident teacher; we guide you beyond QTS, ready for your NQT year, and helping you to identify leadership goals. Teaching is a career, not a course. We look beyond completion. And we begin at Day One.
